This is an interesting question regarding the preservation of original orthography, which may be unimportant to today's readers.

Ignoring sentence starts and presuming that words that should begin with a "capital" letter are names. One could use the OSIS <name> element. The renderer would be responsible for initial cap.

If presentation is to be encoded into the module, the <hi> element could be used. If there isn't a type="initial-cap" then "x-initial-cap".This might be the only current mechanism for sentence starts. This too would require changes to the SWORD engine as most of the values of hi's type element are treated the same. Italic, IIRC.

In any case, the whole word should be marked up.

In Him,
